us that none of the vote has been counted. how can you say that mitt romney has won west virginia? well, all of our cbs news projections tonight will be based on the vote that has been counted and also our exit polling. we have been talking to voters in all of these states all day long as they've left the polling places and based on that exit poll information, we will project winners in these states and we will do so only when we have complete confidence in that projection. now let's look at that battleground states that we keep referring to tonight. these are the states that could go either way. these are the states that are going to tip the balance tonight for one candidate or the other. the polls have closed in a few of them, but many are still voting. in the state of virginia, we do not have a projection, but this is the tabulated vote as we see it so far. just 2% of the vote has been counted. mitt romney out with a lead there. this is a state that president obama won by 6% in 2008, but again, the mitt romney lead may or may not last because only 2% of the vote has been counte

seventh term. lou: such a remarkably able u.s. senator. neil: he moved a lot of positions, he moved gingerly to the right, he cornered his tea party opponent and the winner of the republican primary. that is a seat that stays in republican hands. it could mean that republicans and in worse shape than what we think. lou: given what we have seen, i am not surprised -- in missouri and indiana, this is a campaign organization. let's be straight forward. the strategy was sometimes incomprehensible. it amounted to less than the two plan to take over the senate. this is before things went from bad to worse the. neil: yes, picturing leadership changes here. lou: you absolutely could. there would be those in the senate, in particular, those who would demand changes. the language has become a little tired. the strategy has become a little less provocative and deep than it should be. i'm not talking about the presidency. i'm talking about terms of being competitive in the united states. neil: lou dobbs, thank you so much. we have jeff and columbus, ohio. how does it look? >> yes, i can hear yo

[ male announcer ] e pill eachmorning. 24 hours. zero heartbur >> monday, november 5th. too many is one of the most important presidential election ngs years and we still have no clear idea who is going to win. i've got an opinion, but it's just that, it's an opinion. all the polls had the two candidates in a dead heat. president obama has a one point lead and the wall street journal poll. the daily tracking poll a tie. and the abc news poll president obama a one point lead and the biggest spread from pew research. obama 48, mitt romney 45. that's a lot of polls, a lot of numbers, but the big take away at this, the race at this point is too close to call, it's one day away. now to the storm, one week after. there are 1.4 million homes still in the dark across the northeast, that's a very large number. gas lines seem to be easing a little, but the commute into new york
mechanism he uses to get to know young people. he's done it throughout his life. so it was an opportunity for me to interview him on a run. and i think it was -- i thought i'd test him, but he was going to test me. and it ended up being kind of a test for both of us and so we both ran pretty quickly. but that was the foundation of our -- [ laughter ] -- relationship. when i was in kabul we would do a lot of interviews on runs. for him it was a good distraction from the war. of course he's a bit concerned, as someone in his position would be, about legacy, and he also, you know, came at it from a mentoring point of view and wanted to help me with this project. >> petraeus 60. she's 40, a mother of two, married herself. what more stands out to you this morning? >> that obviously he was enchanted with her. interestingly enough i think the david petraeus story is not going away. just this coming week there are going to be hearings in the house in the intelligence committees on benghazi episode a month ago where four americans including the ambassador were killed. it turns out that petraeus a
brown. democrats hope that this time, the turn out for obama will help to put warren in the u.s. senate. neil: amazed with that money that linda mcmahon put up. they just told me a lot of those fights are rigged. peter thank you very much, peter barnes,. >> we go to robert wolf, chairman, a big supporter of barack obama, how do you technology is going so far. >> you know, i think as predicted there are no surprises yet, we're waiting for key swing states we're optimistic with our stronghold, ohio, wisconsin pennsylvania, iowa. so we're confident that it will be a good night for the president. neil: are you surprised that -- i guess we always knew from a lot of polls it would be a fight. but for the president, who has been champions what he says is an improving economy, he is really on a fight of his life hire. with a guy who early on in the race, tried to say really had no business, running for president, did not had a sort of a callous business disposition, but as numbers come in, this is a 50/50 call almost. >> i think no surprise that -- it will be 50 plus or less one way or the othe
clearly before us, the reality is these people are kvetching, they're belly aching -- >> i like the yiddish. >> they're incapable of understanding what's going on with the broader agenda of america democracy and here is the real deal. people with far less do far better and far more with what they have than those who have a whole bunch. even if the bible that they love to quote, jesus said those who have been given stuff and can't make use of it will have what little they have taken away from them. the reality is the republicans had an enormous universe of affection and goodwill given to them by people who actually don't even share their interests. the 47% that mitt romney was beating up on, a lot of these people voted for him. a lot of white women voted for mitt romney. a lot of the people in the red states voted for mitt romney and received the benefits. what are you complaining about? you're complaining about your mirror. shatter the mirror, look out into the real world, look through the window of reality that most of us have to grapple with, and then you get closer and more i
gambles. i'm going to keep my money safe in the stock market. >> now is the time for us to work on what we all agreed to, which is let's keep middle class taxes. we don't have a lot of time. >>> secretary geithner is up on capitol hill to lead negotiations on the fiscal cliff talks. >> you're not going to grow the economy if you raise taxes on the top two rates. that's not the right approach. >>> string of nasty storms barreling into the west coast. powerful winds have started knocking out power. >> just need to get to the other side of town. i don't have a choice. >> picked a bad day to do it? >> yeah. >> u.s. embassy in cairo is closed. the entrance is blocked by protesters as clashes erupt nearby. >> zebra and s hechlt tland pony ran wild through the streets of new york city. they apparently escaped from a petting zoo. >>> nypd says actress lindsay lohan has been raefed and charged with assault. >> three, two, one. >> only nbc would make a television event out of plugging something in. >> all that -- >> oh, humphries and rondo get into it. officials trying to get control here. >> don't
, released today which indicates the u.s. employers hiring in bigger numbers than expected. let me be clear. this information, this is not coming from that all-important government jobs report. that doesn't come out until tomorrow. so today's numbers come from adp. they process payroll so let's go straight to alison kosik for this. what more do we know about this report? >> okay. what this report does, brooke, surveys how many jobs that private employers have added so it means all those industries that are outside of the government arena and what it said this time around for october is 158,000 jobs were added. and it came in better than expected, seeing good job gains in services and construction and a second report on jobs showing unemployment claims fell by 9,000 last week. decent pieces of news from the labor market but the reality is analysts say it may not have a huge impact on how people vote next week because what matters for voters is what's going on with your own economy an your own life. do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? people are more likely to vote about their own

. thank you for joining us. senator chambliss, when did you first find out about this investigation of general petraeus and what were you told? >> well, i was not told about it until friday. you know, the intelligence community became aware of it on tuesday. actually, late afternoon on tuesday. and then, by the time it sifted through the appropriate channels, through the white house, we were told on friday. >> so, you know, one of your colleagues congressman peter king, chair of homeland security in the house said that fbi director had an obligation to go to the white house and inform the relative authorities, earlier, do you agree with that? >> well, listen, david petraeus is a great leader, a great patriot. and he's a guy who has probably contributed more to the safety of the united states of america over the last decade than any one, single individual and he's a good leader. and what leaders do, when they're put in a difficult position is, they lead. and he led here by doing what he thought was the right thing. and i think he did do the right thing. i don't think there's any ques
